People’s Candidates Challenge Corporate Parties The ruling class will attempt to do what they have always done: derail or push the movement off course from its final destination. But, the will of the people is to have an economy and government that are both finally of, for and by the people, and we will not be deterred.

Anger Boils Over at Denial of Healthcare Healthcare is a life or death matter. We have a right to it. The healthcare crisis gives us an opportunity to fight forward. The entire healthcare system should be publicly owned and healthcare should be free and available to everyone. We can take the first step in that direction by enacting a national single-payer public insurance system: improve Medicare and expand it to cover everyone.

In America health care has become a profit-making $3.2 trillion-a-year business, and you will be allowed to die if you don’t have insurance or money. It’s estimated some 45,000 people die every year in America because they lack health insurance. Health care is a human right, and should be available to everyone who lives in our country. Health care can be a for-profit commodity, or it can be a human right, but it can’t be both.

I will join the March for Science in opposition to the current threat to science and scientific theory. The dangers faced by the scientific community are inseparably intertwined with the attack on democracy, justice and economic survival. These threats did not suddenly arise with Trump’s election and will not magically...

The billionaire ruling class has made several changes to lessen democracy in Baltimore and increase rule by a new form of police terror.  Fascism is much more than the Neo Nazis. It is the corporate/military takeover of government and the destruction of our democracy. The old police terror found in the back of a police van is decried while a new police terror is implemented with little knowledge or discussion.  This is done with tax dollars and private capitalist grants. This police state is...

From Rev. Pinkney at BROOKS/FREMONT CORRECTIONAL FACILITY Let the truth be told. Capitalism generates inequality and wealth, status and power. You must recognize the unfairness of a system that allows wealth to accumulate to an unlimited degree and claim to provide equal opportunity for the people. It is a system that undermines democracy by concentrating power and wealth in the hands of a few. The establishment no longer needs educated workers as it once did. Whirlpool set its sights on...

The Struggle for Democracy in America Intensifies The 2016 presidential election was one of the most divisive in our country’s history. This is no surprise, given the economic, moral, and political crisis. The crisis can’t be solved within an economy controlled by corporations and billionaires. The corporations won’t support workers they don’t need. At the same time, masses of unemployed people are a threat to the system, so the billionaires use racism and every other divisive ideology...

Government Must Guarantee Our Basic Needs The question is: “Why does anyone have the “right” to privately own our natural resources?” If the corporations cannot provide for our needs, then we must demand that government will. The demand that government provides health care, housing, education and water and guarantees them for the people is nationalization—or government takeover of the corporations—in the people’s interests. These demands are a bridge to a new society where the...

The American people want an end to homelessness The demands of the homeless and the whole of our class for the absolute right to housing and all else we need, not just to survive but to thrive, is in reality a cry for the overturning of the profit-driven system of private ownership, and for a society of sharing controlled by the people. This is the ultimate demand of the struggle for homeless rights, and everyone’s basic rights, and its logical outcome.

The effort to push this independence forward must continue now and after the election. Revolutionaries can advance this process by...

The public view of police brutality is challenging the way police do their business. Video from phones and Twitter continue to expose police brutality. The rulers still have the power. The public is trapped between capitalism, drug gangsters whose gunfights kill every day, and police brutality. The murder rate, mainly of Black men, has risen to the highest in 40 years.
